Issue:

When trying to open or allocate a data set using the CA File Master GUI and the user-ID and password window pops up, you enter TSO user-ID and password correctly, but you cannot continue and the window keeps up still asking for user-ID and password.

In the z/OS CAWASRVR server job log you see: 

...

ICH420I PROGRAM JVMLDMnn FROM LIBRARY SYS1.SIEALNKE CAUSED THE ENVIRONMENT TO BECOME UNCONTROLLED.

BPXP014I ENVIRONMENT MUST BE CONTROLLED FOR SERVER (BPX.SERVER) PROCESSING.

...

 

Resolution:

This problem can be resolved by adding PROGRAM CONTROL status to the library containing JVMLDMnn. 

This can be done with the following RACF commands: 

RALTER PROGRAM JVMLDMnn ADDMEM('SYS1.SIEALNKE'//NOPADCHK) 
SETROPTS WHEN(PROGRAM) REFRESH 
... 

You could also do it for all programs on the library by using an asterisk instead of the program name:  

RALTER PROGRAM * ADDMEM('SYS1.SIEALNKE'//NOPADCHK) 
SETROPTS WHEN(PROGRAM) REFRESH 
...

Additional Information:

The user assigned to the server must have UPDATE access to the BPX.SERVER, or else it must run with UID=0.
